DH360 Line Dancing 1/4/17

Welcome to 2017, Dancers!

We kicked off our featured lesson with “Road Less Traveled” by Paula Frohn. The song is absolutely one that is beautifully done and the dance leaves a LOT of availability for variations and styling ideas. Originally choreographed to the song of the same name by Lauren Alaina, it should be noted that when creative enough, this can go well to a few other tracks. Our class used the original song for the initial teach and learning experience.

I happened to trip up on a song called “Chase You Down” by Runaground. (Music Video) This made a really cool alternate track for anyone looking to amp it up somewhat. Some suggested variations for the new track would be swapping out the toe struts (17-20) for another Jazz Box or another 4 count that ends on left, ending the last 4 counts with syncopated sailor steps and noting that because of the way the music was written, use 3 restarts where the beat drops off for 16 counts. This is actually used in the original choreography once.

So here are the links to the featured dances, the reviews and some cool ones we pulled off tonight:
Road Less Traveled
Oops Baby
Bring Down the House
Blue Ain’t Your Color
Sweetness
